Not even a year from its premiere, and True Detective Season 3 already has a body count. Reports indicate director Jeremy Saulnier has stepped away after only a handful of episodes, and will be replaced by an Americans favorite.
HBO is becoming a Streep family business. Weeks after the network confirmed Meryl Streep will make an Emmy-gobbling return for Big Little Lies Season 2, True Detective has now added her daughter Mamie Gummer to the Season 3 ranks for a likely 2019 premiere.
Man, and we thought Westworld and Atlanta delaying new episodes until 2018 was bad. Now True Detective has joined the ranks of our favorite shows delayed until at least 2019, along with Game of Thrones, Stranger Things and more.
You didn’t have to tell us twice that True Detective Season 3 was go with Mahershala Ali leading the cast, but HBO is making it official. Not only is the third season confirmed, but Green Room director Jeremy Saulnier will go behind the camera, and our first story details have arrived.
True Detective Season 3 doesn’t technically have a formal greenlight from HBO, but the casting of Mahershala Ali with input from Deadwood director David Milch already has us back on board. Season 1 star Matthew McConaughey is also excited to see Ali take over the franchise, as only Matthew McConaughey could state.
Our interest in a third season of True Detective jumped considerably with word that Mahershala Ali might lead the cast, so consider us on board. HBO confirms the Luke Cage and Moonlight star would lead a third True Detective, which is now seeking directors.
We’ve known for some time that True Detective Season 3 had largely taken a backseat to creator Nic Pizzolatto’s next HBO project, though few, if any details had emerged on that front. Now, it seems Pizzolatto’s propensity for bringing A-list stars to TV hasn’t cooled one bit, as Robert Downey Jr. may lead a new TV project, and one based on past Perry Mason plans at that.
HBO’s drama problem seems only to increase as 2016 rolls on, a slump that last year dragged True Detective from top-tier to bottom-shelf to cold storage. Matthew McConaughey might just be up for a cold one, however, claiming to have talked with creator Nic Pizzolatto about returning Rustin Cohle for True Detective Season 3.
